Twas the Night Before Chickmas

BY Georgiann Carlson

It’s lots of fun celebrating CHICKMAS at The Coop! Gigi has made this in 3 posts, so here I have put them all together. Thank you Gigi! Adore you!

Twas’ the night before Chickmas

Twas’ the night before Chickmas
and all through The Coop
the chicklets were playing
with their hula hoops

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that St. Chicklaus soon would be there

the chicklets were sleeping
all snug in their beds
while visions of corn bread
danced fast in their heads

the hens in their kerchiefs
the roosters in caps
didn’t have time
for a long
winter’s nap

when out on the lawn
there arose such a clatter
they ran to the window
to see what was the matter

and what to their wondering eyes
did appear
but a miniature sleigh
and one tiny reindeer

as they drew in their heads
they heard a new sound
and there was St. Chicklaus
when they turned around

There were gifts for the chicklets
the hens and the cats
the dogs and the roosters
the horses and bats
the cows and the goats
the birds and the ducks
even the pigs and the squirrels were in luck
all were included
it’s always that way
so everyone there
had the very best day


Two years ago I put all the Twelve Days of Chickmas (also by Gigi) into 1 post. It’s lots of fun to read. Just click on the card below, to go there!

  1. Thank you Resa (and Gigi) for this fantastic feathery festive fun! I just love the idea of St Chickluas. I wish you all a happy and peaceful holiday however you celebrate and hope you all have a fab time.
    p.s. And Resa, please stay safe and don’t go out looking for Miracle Christmas Murals just at the moment…not in this bad weather Canada and the US are experiencing ok!

  2. I’m in love with the Chicklets, Resa. Gigi is amazingly talented. What a lovely message too in this revised Night Before Christmas poem. How could I not smile at that?! Wishing all the critters – two-legged, four-footed, and winged a peaceful new year. Hugs.

Speak your art mind!
